Kanyakumari is centre for art, culture and pilgrimage. It has been described as the southernmost end of Tamil Nadu, the land’s end of India. Kanyakumari is famous for its spectacular sunrises and sunsets. It is much admired to watch the sunrise and sunset here. Because this is a meeting point of three oceans - the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean, and the Arabian Sea. Kanyakumari as it is known is one of the best places to visit. Surrounded by Majestic Hills and the plains bordered by colourful sea-shores, fringed with coconut trees and paddy fields, here and there are few elevated patches of red cliffs with undulating valleys and plains between the mountainous terrain and the sea - coast, so closely interwoven with Temples and Churches and other edifices lies the district, 'Kanyakumari'. A traveller who enjoys the beauty of the nature never gets bored of the beauty of KanyaKumari......
Myth has that Kanya Devi, an avatar of Goddess Parvati, who was to marry Lord Shiva. But he did not turn up and the wedding never took place. The rice and cereals meant for the marriage remained uncooked. Even today, one can buy stones there that look exactly like rice and cereals. Kanyakumari, the Virgin Goddess, is the protector of India’s shores.

PLACES TO SEE
Vivekananda Rock Memorial
 One of the best places on earth!
It is on one of the twin rocks jutting out from the sea about 200 metres. Sit here for some time and you’ll feel as if you are not from this world…

Gandhi Memorial
Gandhi Memorial is the place where his ashes were kept for public viewing. The temple designed in Orissa style, is built nicely and is specious.
